A couple in Burundi’s northern city of Kirundo, Burundi defied all odds and continued with their wedding, despite an unfortunate incident which occured three days to the wedding.
The groom, Gabin Ndayizigiye got involved in a bike accident three days prior and Charlotte Mukantwari tied the knot with him at the hospital where he was being treated.
Charlotte stayed with him by his bedside since the accident occurred and they both decided to hold the ceremony on 4th of July as they had earlier planned.
Despite the priest telling Ms Mukantwari to dress down, in what he expected to be a low-key event, she showed up wearing a wedding dress.
“I’ve been waiting for that date, facing that challenge was like facing the devils’ temptation, I couldn’t imagine my life after missing it,” Ms Mukantwari told the BBC Gahuza service.
